“The first time around, everyone was asking, ‘Are you Christian Grey?’ I went ‘No!’ But no one cared and everyone kept talking about it.  This time around, everyone is now still convinced I’m part of the series. Now the question is, ‘Are you going to be in ‘Fifty Shades Darker. ‘ And I thought, I’m going to try a different tact this time. See what they say.  And so I tried a different tact.”

When he finally confirmed that the rumors were false, he was amused by the fact that the dismay of his fans would change nothing. This became a social experiment for him and he admitted that if given the chance, he would do it again in a heartbeat.
